    Lt. Col. Hugh Tracey and architect George Bergstrom conceived this building's five-corner design during a feverish summer weekend early in World War II.

    If you have a meeting at the Pentagon and need to park, do so at the Pentagon City Mall and metro one stop. Closer than the visitor's spots in North Parking (and a warmer walk!)

    Beware of lines, visitors. Processing through security can take up to an hour. Lines are sometimes outdoors, so of you're unable to be in the heat for health reasons plan accordingly :)

    The tour was quick, and I left feeling that I wasn't sure if it was really worth doing. I don't think it would be a top thing I would recommend visitors do in DC. I did enjoy the 9/11 Memorial though.

    Request a tour to see the inside. The tour guides are all members of the armed forces, and are very friendly and informative.

    The tour is a blur... makes me feel they don't want me in there for too long. Can't blame them! That reservation is set for anyone to live in there for a year without missing the outside world!

    The Pentagon is designed so that, ideally, it takes at most seven minutes to walk between any two points in the building.

    The Pentagon features briefly in an establishing shot in You Only Live Twice (1967) from where US officials observe a rocket launch.

    On 9/12/01, Methodist Bishop Joe Pennel prayed with the colleagues of those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon (from "Methodism and Politics in the Twentieth Century" by Mark Tooley).

    They're closing the metro entrance/exit on the visitor side on Feb 4th and it won't open until September. Visitors should expect to walk around the main entrance by the bus terminal to get to security

    It's not terribly convenient to get in unless you know someone who works there, but it's like a giant museum.
